Paternity: An Overview

No two families are the same, and you need an attorney that can look at your situation and determine what are the appropriate next steps. Paternity is an important part of family law cases, and we can help you move forward once you have the information you need. Christopher R. Abernathy, APLC, has helped clients throughout Southern California work through these complicated issues.

What You Can Expect

When it comes to your rights as a parent, establish paternity is crucial. It also has an impact on child support and custody. This is why getting things done the right way is of the utmost importance. Determining paternity can be done either voluntarily or involuntarily. If a man is unwilling to admit paternity, he can be forced to take a test by the court. All it takes is the biological mother filing a lawsuit.

After paternity is confirmed, it opens the child up to many opportunities. For example, they are now able to access death benefits and inheritance that either parent leaves them. Furthermore, there are many psychological benefits to knowing who your father is. We are here to help you from beginning to end and understand this complicated process.
